MAXReader – A free MAXQDA project reader

With the free MAXReader everyone can view, search for, browse and “dig through” MAXQDA projects. Share your results with your team members or your examiner.

Knowledge Management – All knowledge resources (e.g. in organizations) can be made available to specific target groups without manipulation of the data.

Evaluation – Examiners are able to easily see and understand their student’s project data.

Research Centers, Museums or Libraries – Data can be made accessible for viewing without giving any control away that might lead to changes in the original data.

Teaching – Professors can view their student’s project data in order to comment on their work. Real project read-only files allow you to track and discuss distinct stages of the qualitative data analysis process.

Teamwork – Teams can track and discuss several stages and steps throughout the analytical process on un-editable files. You can then easily distribute these uneditable materials within a research institute.
